Gmail double blue check how it works

When composing an email, the tracker is added automatically. It also adds a subtitle '- Sent via Doubletick' at the end of your email which you can delete if you want.

When emails are sent and delivered to the recipient, two black dashes appear next to the email.

When the recipient opens i.e. reads / sees the email, the signs turn blue.

DoubleTick works in your browser via the Chrome extension. The recipient will not need to install the extension.


DoubleTick has access to all your email messages. The service accesses it in good faith and promises not to sell the data or share it with anyone else. It is understandable that users may be reluctant to use this service but I assure you that there is no cause for concern.

Install DoubleTick from the Chrome Web Store
